I made this recipe as written, and it did not come out like a pie. My friend made hers with apple pie filling and she tossed in the garbage. Mine was made with cherry pie filling. The center is more like a soup! The flavor was good. I think this has more of a texture of a "crisp", and could be served with ice cream maybe? I doubt I that I will make it again.

I made this recipe while growing up and learning to cook. It originally appeared on the back of a bag of flour. So nice to see someone else remembered it too. I think this is a fun quick recipe.
